A Mesh Generator


Hello Guys, i have posted in this forum about CustomGeometry component, i have some headcache to export Mesh generated,
So i think it best Create my own mesh Generator, i will Share with community.
the i did not put texcoord parameters, if you place I’ll thank

[b]How to use[/b]
Mesh mesh = new Mesh(context_);
mesh->Commit() // Use this for build geometry
mesh->Save("c://MeshName") // If you save mesh
StaticMesh* staticMesh = new StaticMesh(context_);
staticMesh->SetModel(mesh->GetModel()); // For Display

Some Screenshots using the Code
This is my tool for generate Roads


Generate 3D road segment from 2D contour
Foliage Rendering
Build any road curve from a road section
Problems connecting multiple meshes at run-time

cool !


How’s the performance of it? Thanks for the contribution. This should be available in the engine itself.


I coudn’t test the performance, but i think is nearly value of CustomGeometry because i used CustomGeometry with reference

Spline roads in Urho

I stumbled upon this thread not to long ago and decided to update the code so I could utilize it in my project. This update includes calculating normals, tangents, and uvs (not perfect). Hopefully someone else can continue to improve on the code. Thanks for your contribution @rbnpontes!




Urho3D::Scene export to Collada, STL etc

Just a note, I did this update really quickly… so there are definitely some inefficiencies in it which should be resolved. I’m sure some of those are easy to spot as you traverse through the code. Although, for the most part it does work pretty well.
